WHAT`S IT ABOUT?
The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton follow the story of Trigger Keaton’s death. Or I should rather say murder. Usually, when death comes knocking and takes away your final breath, there is a mourning period. Well, that is what is usually expected, right? However, that is not the case for Trigger as he has become the most unlikable action star in Hollywood.
It is up to his six sidekicks to prove this was not a suicide but a murder that was made to look like a suicide. However, Trigger made the lives of his television sidekicks a living hell. Miles Nguyen is the unlucky newest sidekick who found Trigger dead. He is playing a T.V detective who believes it is up to him to solve the mystery. Miles convinces the other sidekicks to band together. But, it may seem an impossible task as everyone who has ever had anything to do with Trigger Keaton flat out hated him.
THE ART AND STYLE.
Chris Schweizer delivers with each panel. The cartooning of the characters delivers and builds on each of the characters represented in the series. You won’t struggle to distinguish any of the characters. You get a sense of each of the sidekicks before even a word is spoken (written). To put it simply their personality believes, and what drives them becomes clear just by looking at a character.
This is a brilliant and must-read masterpiece. This is an eccentric premise stuffed with amazing characters and lots of funny moments, and in all of that, there is still incredible depth to it. It is an absolute work of art with brilliant storytelling, managing to fully develop the six characters’ backstories through the heartbreak and pain caused by one twisted sick individual named Trigger Keaton. This is a must-read comic not to be missed.
